The Philadelphia training camp is happening soon, and many people expect great things to occur before the official training starts.
One of them is the top trade candidates that will be picked for the 2022 July training.

However, before we talk about that, we’re sure you’d like to know some details about the training, so let’s get started.

Training Details

The Philadelphia Eagles training camp will officially start on July 26, 2022, with all the players having to mandatory attend the training camp. Failure to attend this training camp will result in a fine of $50,000 per day missed. While the full length of the training camp hasn’t been announced yet, it’s speculated to start in July and end until the last week of August.

However, it’s been announced that joint training will occur with the Browns before their preseason game. Not only that, but they will also have practice matches with the Dolphins right before their preseason game on August 27.

If you’re a massive fan of the Eagles, we have some good news for you: we can attend one training camp practice this year. The team announced in June that they would hold a public practice for their fans on the Lincoln Financial Field on August 7.

That said, let’s get to the meaty part, shall we? First, the fans speculate that the Eagles will be the first to pounce if the right players become available. For betting fans, this is going to be exciting as, just like NCAAF betting, NFL betting is big on prop betting. The Eagles’ are a good team to look out for. 

However, with Philadelphia only having $3.5 million in cap space available, we are sure that trading will be a part of their strategy.

That said, which players will the Eagles consider moving as the training camp approaches? Here are some of them.

WR Jalen Reagor

With Brown on the team, things are getting cloudy for the 2020 first-round pick Jalen Reagor. He has struggled with producing a consistent performance as of late, with only 695 yards and three touchdowns for the past two seasons. 

We can say that the team is desperate for Jalen to pick up the pace for this season, but it might be difficult with new players in the mix. This is because, with Brown, Quez Watkins, Zach Pascal, Greg Ward, and DeVonta Smith, Jalen might have difficulty proving himself.

Although Jalen is a valuable part of the team, if a receiver-needy contender comes on the team, then trading Reagor might not be a bad idea. While his performance is not very good as of late, he still carries a first-round honor and two years left on his rookie contract. So there’s value in that, and the Eagles might capitalize on those for a trade.

If we’re discussing pure trade value, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox represents the Eagles’ greatest trade chip. This future Hall of Famer is still very productive at 31, finishing last season with 35 tackles, seven for loss, and 3.5 sacks.

Cox has a great potential to bring great value in a trade, and the Eagles have their eyes on rookie Jordan Davis. However, there’s a caveat here regarding his potential as a trading chip. Cox came back from a one-year deal that carries a cap of $4 million this year but also includes $14 million in dead money. 

Therefore, the Eagles must convince a team to accept a portion of the deal or create enough cap space to make a good trade. But still, Cox is a great player himself and has the potential to be the missing piece of another team’s Super Bowl win, which could mean a massive deal for the Eagles. On the other hand, Davis can be a potential heir for Cox’s superb defensive tackle if he’s ready to start away.

QB Gardner Minshew

Gardner Minshew could also be another piece of the Super Bowl puzzle as he went 1-1 as a starter last season and even helped the Eagles go to the postseason. Even though Minshew can be a very valuable player for the Eagles, he has more value as a trading chip. He’s shown to be a good starter, with a career passer rating of 93.9.

The Eagles signed the Nevada QB Carson Strong as an undrafted free agent for the offseason. While it doesn’t make Minshew expendable, it provides the Eagles with an understudy option. The key here is for the Eagles to wait for a team to lose its starter for a significant amount of time, and when that time comes, Minshew’s trade value will skyrocket.

Final Words

As these players are only the candidates for a trade before the Eagles’ training camp begins, it’s still quite unsure if the team itself will make any more postseason moves, although it’s quite likely to happen.

But as mentioned earlier, if the right players become available for trading, the Eagles will have no time to waste and prepare themselves to pounce.
